on Lexington street where he
may find Miss Minnie Trainor,
who a few weeks ago enticed him
iuto the house !No. Saratoga

over $1,()00. He does not re
member the house where he was
robbed, but he has sworn that if
he ever should find the woman
he would send her to the Peni

Mrs. Margaret Smith, at Litch

find her daughter, who ran a way
from home some ten months ago,
and who has now become a panel-thief
in Baltimore under the

The young girl rose with n
heavy sigh. She did not vouch
safe one word to the young man,
but, drying her tears, she put on
her shawl and turned to the door.

three minutes. : . f . "
As the pale rays of the moon
fell upon her charming face a ter

picted upon it. ' " ;"
"Oh, God, God!" she murmer
ed at last, with a groan of an
guish, "that 1 my l)()r old moth

Then she pressed her hands u-
on her heaving bosom, bit upon
her lips, and sped away upon her
SHAME AND CRIME.
"When she reached thc corner
of Baltimore and Gay street, a
tall, broad-shouldered man, no
longer in the prime of life, was
coming up the. street.
Minnie had placed herself un
der thc gaslight, so that, her beau
tiful face was plainly discernible.
Her prepossessing appearance at
tracted the man's attention. She
wanted to speak to him, but the
words choked in her throat.
"Hallo, little girl," said the
man to her, with" a broad West
ern accent, "you seem to be dis
tressed. What is the matter
Minnie forced herself to smile
significantly at him.
"Do you live far from here?"
She shook her head.
"Suppose I go along- with

walked down (Jay street, he said
"Why don't you spea"k?"
She forced herself to laugh;
"You do all the talking for
me," she replied.
" Yv hat is vour name, he then
"Minnie? That's a pretty
name. And where do you live?"
"Bight round the corner here."
She took him into the bouse,
which she had left but a short
time before. Before he entered
the door he looked at
THE NUMBER OP THE HOUSE.
It was so indistinct that he
could not make out what it was.
The halhvay was dark. Minnie
took him by the hand, and led
him into a back room upstairs,
which was but dimly lighted.
He wanted to turn up the gas.
"Don't!" she said, seizing his
- "Why not?" he replied, frown
ingly. "I want to have a light
here. I have heard so much a
bout panel-houses in Baltimore,
that I want to satisfy myself
first what sort of a place this is."
So saying, he pushed her back.

A heavy brown door commun

attracted the stranger's attention.
At the door stood a chair, the
only one in the room. Minnie
watchud the man with breathless
suspense as he pushed that chair
aside and seized the door-knob.
The door was locked. Then he
laid his hands on the upper panel
of the door, and tried to draw it

Minnie, rushing up to him.

said the latter, laughing. "So,
my pretty little decoy, you have
inveigled me in a panel-house!
But old Billy Moore is up to your
tricks! He has too much money
in his pocket to be fooled that
way." Minnie stood as if
PETRIFIED WITH TERROR.
The next moment the door
opened and the young fellow
whom she called Charles rushed
in. In his right hand he held a
revolver. "With his left he dealt
the stranger who had not looked

blow in the face, which caused

-from Curious Kansas.
Mr. J. H. Beeson, the well
known Central Branch contract
or, gave the Patriot a pleasant
call this morning, and from him
we leant the particulars of the
most remarkable snake-story we
have heard. In the extension of
the Central Branch Road from
Beloit to Cawker City, the line
passes through the town of Glen
Elder. A short distance from
Glen Elder, on the Solomon Riv
er, is a steep and rocky bluff, a-
bout fifty-five high, a large por
tion of which had to be blasted
away to make room for the road
bed. A few day ago while the
excavation was in progress a

giant powder tore off an unusual-

three and a half feet long. He
also says that fanners for five
miles around tell them that this
is the regular winter den of these
venomous creatures, and that
during the fall the snakes in that
country, which are discovered,
are headed in thc direction of the
bluffs, and the only way the' can
be turned from their course is to
kill them. It is said to be one

The Capture and Escape
Of Jaiucs I. aud Dr. Jesse M.

BT THEIR BROTHER, O. 8IDMCT STEWART.
Late in the afternoon Jim
with great difficulty arrived in
front of a respectable looking
residence with his sick brother.
The rain was still falling and
joud peals of thunder constantly
shook the earth beneath them.
The convulsion of the elements
was a striking representation of
their minds as they stood fearing
to ask admittance. "Hallo,"
shou'ed Jim, summoning all his
courage, and a young man in
stantly appeared at door. ""We
have been out hunting labor in
thc harvest and my brother has
suddenly become ill. Can I get
shelter for him?" said Jim earn
estly. "Bring him in," replied
thc young man dryly. "When
they entered the lady of the
house scanned them from head
to foot over her spectacles, then
placing them on her forehead
proceeded to make a more mi
nute inspection. "You arc sol
diers, are yon?" she finally en
quired. "Xo ma'am," replied
Jim, "just out hunting work."
"Have 'ou never been in thc
army?" 6he continued, eyeing
them alternately. "Xo ma'am,
but we mean to go before long,"
said Jim. "Then how came
yon with Confederate uniform?"
still interrogated the old lady.
"We swapped for this the other
day, but we didn't know it was
Confederate uniform," replied
Jim, as he looked at thc cloth
ing, then at thc old lady in sur
prise. An unpleasant si'ence
followed, during which the old
ladies' two sons stepped out;
and Jim, to avoid another vol
ley of unpleasant questions, fol
lowed them. Jim'sconvcisatiou
with thc young men led him to
believe that they had happened
at the right place. "1 have not
spoken a word of truth since
we came," said Jim finally, "but
believing you are friends to us I
will relate to 3011 our secret."
So he told them when they join
ed the Confederate army as vol
unteers, where they were cap
tured and taken to prison and
how they had made good their
escape that far, to the great as
tonishment and interest of the
young men, who assured him
ihcy would do every thing in
their power to assist him and
his brother to get home. Jim
then told them that they had
two more companions they had
left in the bushes that evening,
and at the young men' sugges
tion they went to offer Buffalo
and Xuby a home also Till Jes

ets during the day, where he of
ten entertained Mrs. - Brown's
sons. and their friends by telling
his 'adventures and explaining
southern customs. Jessie re
ceived every attention that the
iud nature of Mr. Brown could
bestow. She would send enough
dinner to Jim for ten men which

in a few days alter their arrival,
these vouncr men and their
riends made them a purse' of

How are you feeling new
Jesse," asked Jim as he entered
the window to spend the night
with his brother. "I am improv
ing. I think I shall be able to
travel soon," replied Jesse en
couragingly. "We must do
some planning before we start
and now is a good time to be
gin," said Jim as he took a seat
by the bed. "I was thinking to
day that we might invent a bet
ter plan," said Jesse thoughtful
ly. It was late that night when
thc brothers fell asleep; but the
result of their wakefulness was
a complete change in their man
ner of traveling. The diary
they, had kept since they"
left home was exchanged for a
blauk book in which they forc
ed accounts of farm operations,
to prove if necessary that they
were not soldiers. "With the aid
of Mrs. Brown's sons they tra
ded their butter-nut jeans to a
country merchant for citizen
suits. A valise was presented
them by Mrs. Brown for their
baggage, as they had decided
to take the train at Yandalia,
Fayette county, Illinois, which
was the nearest dejiot. After a.
lapse of eight days Jesse was
willing to undertake the project.
In the dead hours of night when
all animate nature was wrapped
in sleep, the parting scene of
the brothers and the Brown fam
ily occurred. Mrs. Brown, as
she bid them adieu, gave free
vent to her tears, saying, "May
the Lord preserve you that you
may reach your home and friends
To be continued.
Can a Man Marry Himself.
On the t)th of Xov., 18:31, the
Kev. Samuel Beamish, of Cork,
being then in holy orders, went
to the house of a milliner named
Ann Lyons, in the City of Cork,
and there, in a place where he
believed there was no witness,
performed a ceremony of marri
age between himself and a young
woman named Isabella Frazer.
The ceremony was that prescrib
ed in the Book of Common IVay
er, the Bev. Mr. Beamish offici
ating for himself. Xo clergyman
was present except the Bev. Mr.
Beamish himself, nor was there,
in fact, any one present as a for
mal witness; but the performance
of the ceremony was witnessed
by a finale named Catherine
Coffey, who, without the knowl
edge of the contracting parties,
and solely from curiosity, saw it
going on through a window from
an adjoining back yard, though
she did not hear what was 6aid
by either party. Isabella Frazer
gave birth to a son in 1811, and
in 1811 the Kev. S. Beamish
died intestate. It was then con
tended by a brother of the rev
erend gentleman that thc marri
age was invalid and that the boy
was, therefore, illegitimate, and
could not succeed to his father's
estate. The question occupied
the attention of thc Irish law
Courts for two years, but was at
length and finally decided that
the marriage was valid in Ireland.
The first street car line in this
country, the Fourth avenue, X.
